Chalkboard session: KaepernickBreaking down a key play
By JOHN KRYK, QMI Agency
Perhaps the primary reason the San Francisco 49ers switched starting quarterbacks last month is that Colin Kaepernick provides more of a downfield passing threat than his predecessor, Alex Smith.
Another reason is that Kaepernick can make dazzling plays with his feet. Case in point, last Sunday in Miami.
The 49ers lead the Dolphins 20-13 with 2:20 remaining, and San Francisco has the ball 3rd-and-5 at midfield. The Niners come out in a robust package in the pistol – with three tight ends, one running back and only one wide receiver, flanked left.
